11:04 pm
didn't hear a single republican moan about it. >> eric: so under george bush gas prices increased and so did oil prices but then he started to drill offshore it dropped to $133 a barrel to $33. i swear to you this will bring the gasoline down $1 a gallon. wait a minute. this will bring the gasoline down. if energy secretary chu or president obama opened this envelope, president obama will win re-election. will he call? i doubt it. here it is. want it? open the envelope. >> greg: here is the deal. chu illustrates what happens when the faculty lounge collides with the real world. all bad ideas are good on the campus. but then then starbucks socialism leaves the class room and hits the highway, it falls apart. everyone is talking about the poll numbers and saying well we, it's not contraception.
11:05 pm
it is about contraception and gas prices. feminists should be outraged if they have to pay that much money for gas to drive to the clinic to get free birth control pills. gas prices is a feminist issue. they should be outraged. >> kimberly: i want to talk about this. are you ready for this, bob? relax. take it easy being back with the show. we'll talk about obama numbers. got a little problem. some of the polls, bob, with women, which is traditionally a group he has been able to rely on at the polls to help drive him in the white house. does he have an issue now? >> bob: well, you talk about the "new york times" poll. one that i find reliable. it's so far out of an squat liar poll, the average poll with women for obama is 50% favorable. they have him at 41%. i'm not surprised to see the problem with women. i said this all along, the biggest indicator of re-election for a president is

disposable income. and gas prices are the hardest thing to hit you for disposable income. unemployment doesn't matter in terms of the overall vote. but gas prices will. gets to $5 a barrel, you could beat him. i don't think it will get to $5 a barrel. i don't think any single thing you've got in the envelope, besides a great -- that blonde is good looking. >> andrea: based on what you say, should the president stop with the war on contraception and focus on gas prices? it seems to greg's point, women don't really -- i mean, they are angry they got to drive. but not that angry. >> eric: i had a long debate with the producers this morning about this. i'll prove without question tomorrow when i feel a little better while contraception is helpful, not hurtful. >> andrea: but it's with voters that he would have had anyway. the women would have voted for barack obama anyway. he doesn't need the feminist vote. he has it cornered.
11:07 pm
>> kimberly: unless he feels vulnerable. he needs to mobilize them. >> eric: hitting on the point. he should turn his attention to the economy. and gas prices. but he doesn't. he can't. he should. >> kimberly: won't drill. >> eric: not going to stay on anything that is not the economy or gas prices. >> greg: obama's big mistake is what all men do. that is we miss the big picture. i'll come home from a late night of drinking and i'll buy flowers, but the flowers don't matter if i'm not wearing my pants. the fact is -- >> kimberly: did that happen last night? >> greg: women care about everything. it's not just about contraception. it is about the economy. they don't buy in free gifts like free pills. can i point out that david axelrod pulled out of bill maher's show. if that is not a sign of panic, i don't know what is. >> bob: what is a sign of panic is a vision in my head of you without your pants on. i can only imagine what that

does to your wife. there is more oil drilled in the united states today than in the last decade. one. two, we take less than 50% of the oil from overseas, which i believe in s the first time in the last ten years. george bush had $4.11 a gallon gas. >> kimberly: but he put forward to the drilling could happen. now reap benefits of it. >> andrea: after he said drill. set it off the coast of florida but his brother wanted to get re-election. >> kimberly: real quick. i want to get to the bill maher thing. >> eric: bad news, bob. good news? gallup poll shows women approval rating of barack obama is increasing. you are 100% right. it's higher than when he started. higher than at the beginning of the year. here is the bad news. the economy. 60%, 59% of people disapprove of his handling of the economy. 63% of gasoline. 59% feel he has no idea.
11:09 pm
>> bob: is that a shock to you? >> eric: no. >> bob: the pressure is when you get in polling booth and look at the questions, is barack obama or mitt romney the one to hand this for you? if you are right and think romney will do it for you, then obama will lose. >> andrea: the poll, he beats him by seven point information the poll. >> bob: that is so far off. >> andrea: why every poll that we cite -- >> bob: not that. but among independents, romney is in the worst shape of any public figure in america. >> andrea: not according to bloomberg. >> bob: bloomberg should stick to business. >> kimberly: how do you know it went get better as it goes forward and they select nominee versus everything fragmented? he is ahead to head in 49-45, obama tight in support of women. >> bob: if you have an economy that bad, numbers are that bad. >> greg: you can't ask women to vote for you as a favor.
